Welcome! The lobby of the Deranged L.A. Crimes theater is open. Grab a bucket of popcorn, some Milk Duds and a Coke and find a seat. Tonight’s feature is CRY DANGER starring Dick Powell and Rhonda Fleming.
Enjoy the movie!
As he steps out of Los Angeles’ Union Station, ex-convict Rocky Mulloy, fresh from serving five years of a life sentence for robbery and murder, is greeted by Lt. Gus Cobb, the detective responsible for his incarceration. With Gus is Delong, the decorated, disabled Marine who provided Rocky with the alibi that finally freed him. The cynical Gus invites Rocky and Delong for a drink, and at the bar, Delong explains that, because he shipped out the day after the holdup, he was unaware that Rocky, with whom he and some other Marines had been drinking the night before, was in trouble.
Thank you for these posts and your crimes posts. Between you and Eddie Mueller’s Noir Alley, I get to fulfill my passion for true crime and old cars ( in the movies). I’ve also begun to recognize you on some of the true crime shows quite often. I do like the style with which you write these stories. Always makes me want to know the afterstories of many of the characters. Thanks again.
Thank you for your kind words. I know Eddie, and I’m thrilled that he is hosting Noir Alley. It’s the perfect vehicle for him.
